End of the Semester

Wow, college really is flying by fast.  Next year is my last year–I will be graduating in May! (hopefully)  This semester has flown by, and really hasn’t been that stressful. (Thank goodness)

Intro. to PR has really been an awesome class.  I feel that I learned a lot, but that it wasn’t too stressful or over-complicated.  No busy work or last minute assignments, and nothing too crazy.  Not all of the group projects worked very well, but those are just lessons learned for future references.  I feel like I took what I needed to out of the class, and that’s all that’s important. 🙂
I’m also in News Reporting & Writing, and while it, too, covers press and news releases, it concentrates more on the journalistic approach.  From these two classes, I have definitely learned that I am an independent worker, and prefer to do things on my own.  Other people are unreliable, late, and usually do not perform to my own standards.  Dealing with disappointment and frustration makes me realize that it’s easier to get things done right, the first time, and on my own.  That may be the biggest thing I’ve learned this semester.

This semester has been my easiest, and a lot of fun as well.  I got an awesome new job last February in marketing, and I’ve already gotten so much out of it.  I quit my crappy bar job, and am getting a lot more sleep as a result 🙂  I made a few new friends, signed a lease on a fantastic new apartment next year, and got two baby ducks 🙂  My boyfriend and I hit the one-year mark, my little sister got into Southern, and I have definitely learned more this semester than I have any other.  I really hope my last year can continue on like this one has!  I have definitely taken the most out of this semester, and learned what exactly I might be doing job wise once I graduate.  It’s a great feeling, and I can’t wait to graduate and (hopefully) get a job!

My Bucket List

My Bucket List?  Well for starters, I love to travel, and I definitely want to see all Seven Wonders of the World.  I want to visit many countries–including India, Egypt, Africa, China, and the parts of Europe that I have not yet been to.  I definitely want to travel all across South America and see exotic animals, the Mayan ruins, and the Amazon River.  I love the geographical differences in other countries, and I really appreciate the unique qualities other countries have to offer.  I want to sky dive (hopefully this summer 🙂 and above all, I want to get married and be a mom.  That’s my biggest goal in life–to have a family.

Everyone wants to be remembered for something.  No one wants to be forgotten after they pass away.  I’m not quite sure what I’d want to be remembered for yet, but I want to be remembered fondly, for something I’ve done or achieved.  Maybe in the next few years my life path will be a little more laid out for me, but for right now, I still have so many decisions to make and forks in the road ahead of me.

I just want to have the feeling of a fulfilled life when it’s time for me to die.  I don’t ever want to be held back, and I don’t ever want to regret not doing something.  I like to surround myself with people that encourage my sense of curiosity and adventure, and I stay away from people that lack ambition and drive. I am adventurous, and want to lead an exciting life–whatever that may mean.

The Best Advice

Whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on, I would always find my mom.  She is so non-judgmental and always gave me the best advice, knowing exactly what I needed to hear.  But through the tough times, whatever they may have been, she always reminded me that though it may have felt like it, it was not the end of the world.

The best advice I’ve ever been given is not really advice, but more of just a philosophy to always remember–Life goes on.  No matter what happened, whether it be a back-stabbing friend, a bad grade, a stressful situation, a heartbreak, or anything else, Mom would always remind me that I would get over it, and that in no time, whatever I was going through would be a thing of the past.  And even though sometimes I felt like I would never get through it, somehow Mom always ended up being right.  Life went on, I lived through it, and I have since forgotten about so many things that once seemed like the end of the world.

I can’t say I always took her advice to calm down or relax, even though I always look back and know I should have.  I am a very high-stressed, tense person, and it takes a lot of convincing for me to stop stressing out.  I’m a little better about it now–I am able to look past the current moment and know that there’s a future beyond now, but Mom’s advice has always helped, because I just remember that no matter what, life does go on.
